Welsh Terrier

The Welsh Terrier is somewhat less exuberant than many other terrier breeds, making him a somewhat easier house-dog with very similar lines and traits to the Lakeland Terrier.

Originally bred to hunt foxes, badger and otter, this working breed has an easy to maintain, weather-proof, wiry coat which is relatively easy to maintain. Bred for power and endurance instead of speed which gives him a broader, compact "cobby" shape.

Often described as the least quarrelsome of the Terriers, the Welsh has all the gaiety, fire and courage expected of a terrier combined with the common sense and dignity of the larger working breeds; this happy blend of temperaments makes him easy to train and ideally suitable as a family companion.
